hey Dan, it may be possible that the drivers got corrupted in the move. Also, you may want to check the Bios to make sure your PCI isn't designated for something else too like say primary video...just a thought.. One other option...if you register, this utility updates drivers after it scans your hardware. I've used it as well as quite a few people in this forum...let me know how it turns out DriverMax - free driver updates
Hi guy --this is just the sort of program I'd advise people NOT to run on their computers -- this site might be OK but these type of programs often contain adware, spyware and worse.
The logic behind these types of programs are also pretty stupid as the computer you want the drive for is not necessarily the one you are using to access the internet with -- and even if you are you might be using Linux or XP (since the card works) but actually want the driver for Vista or W7 which doesn't work. Also inevitably you'll at the very least have to register somewhere - and you'll get loads of "Nagware" asking you to upgrade to a "Pro" i.e PAY FOR version.
Windows update on the whole is your best bet -- OK if you can't access the Net a problem I know. Otherwise just try the manufacturers site or even a "generic" driver if you can find one using a machine or OS that DOES work and then install the driver manually.
NIC cards, and the Virtual SCSI emulation (software such as Alcohol, Clone CD, Daemon tools etc use this for mounting an ISO as a virtual CD/DVD) seem to be the biggest problems so far in the Beta together with some rather extreme Video cards. I'm not a gamer so I can't help with the Video drivers but I'll certainly keep looking at the NIC front. Strangely enough most wireless cards work OK.
A temporary get around is (even on a desktop) to use a bog standard USB==>LAN adapter - very cheap and fast enough for most usage. On a Laptop a PCI express==>Lan card works fine for wired connections and can be faster than the built in NIC card anyway --speeds of 1GB are possible unlike typical LAN speeds of 100MB. - This is for your own INTERNAL LAN BTW not connection to the Internet - that speed is limited by your ISP.
